Add Person to Course Wizard

From the Admin People page, click Add New Person to Course link to access the Add Person to Course wizard.

Step 1

Enter the SUNet ID of the person you want to grant access to your course Web site. Note: A person’s email address may be an alias and not their SUNet ID. If you want a person who is not part of the Stanford community to access your course Web site, they must obtain a SUNet ID. SUNet IDs are available from Stanford’s Information Technology Systems and Services group. For information see: http://www.stanford.edu/group/itss/services/sunetid/

Click Next to advance to next step in the wizard. Click Cancel to exit without making changes.

Step 2

Enter the person's information in all required fields and select from the drop-down menus (e.g., first and last names, University affiliation).

From the drop-down menu, select the person’s role in the course.

Roles include guest, student, designer, grader, TA, instructor, courseadmin. Guest and student roles have the same privileges. Designer, grader, TA, instructor, and courseadmin roles are functionally the same. Students and guests can only access Student View content whereas the remaining roles can access all areas and functions of the course Web site.

If you want the person to be able to access your course Web site, select the Active option. Otherwise, select the Inactive option to prevent the person from accessing the Web site. For example, you may want to list students as inactive if you are in the process of putting up your site. Once the site is ready for viewing, you can make the students active.

Select the section that this person can access.

Click Next to advance to Step 3. Click Prev to go back to Step 1.

Step 3

Preview all of the information that you’ve entered in the previous 2 steps. Click Prev to return to Steps 1 and 2. Click Save to add the person to your course.

Step 4

In the final wizard screen, CourseWork reports that you’ve successfully added/registered the person to the course. Click OK to exit the wizard and return to the Admin People page.
